SWISH and So Help Me God were dumb titles anyway.

Fantastic writeup! Perfect article to drink coffee over on a snow day here in Portland. The song that was always the most memorable for me on this album is "Ask Me Anything." The minimalist Mellotron thing is pretty rad. It's a nice song.

Did you know that Is This It was recorded digitally? From what I've read, it was a pretty scrappy setup they were working with, even by the standards of the day. And it was all recorded to a click track. So in many ways, they were ALWAYS "Pro Tools/DAW rock." They just had a superior approach and superior songs than, say, Nickelback.

The mono versions are where it's at. Too bad it's only the inferior stereo versions that are available. But still, FINALLY.

Yep, I still listen to The Beatles fairly regularly. No one else has done pop music as good since.

He was a nice dude. It was like the third promo thing he'd done that day, so he was pretty tired I think and didn't talk much, but he seemed pretty easy going. He's a talented guy too.

December 16, 2015 on The “Hotline Bling” Supercut
Hey, you guys included the Charlie Puth version from my work! It was from a fan video, not our own pro-shot video, but that's still awesome.

"These guys." I don't even know where to start with the shitbaggery of his use of that phrase here,

December 9, 2015 on Pharma Villain Martin Shkreli Paid Millions For The Mysterious Wu-Tang Album
Seriously. I sometimes forget that some people DON'T pay for it and have to suffer through countless ads. I happily pay $10 a month for it. It's a steal.

December 8, 2015 on Spotify Considers Restricting Some Music To Paid Subscribers Only
I don't think this album is that bad. It's lacking a bit of substance and not particularly memorable, but it's perfectly listenable, IMO. I wasn't wild about Ghost Stories, and I don't think this album is a return to form by any means, but it's not that offensive!

December 4, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams
Tame Impala was a huge disappointment for me. Lonerism is one of my favorite albums of this century, and Currents was just not good, save for a couple songs.

To be honest, I found myself disappointed by a lot of my favorite bands this year. Tame Impala blew it. UMO blew it. Kurt Vile is meh. Coldplay is meh. Beach House is meh (both of them). Maybe it's me, I don't know what my problem is. Maybe I expected too much. So I have a hard time finding 10 albums this year to even put on a top 10 list, so here's my top 5: 1. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear 2. White Reaper - White Reaper Does It Again 3. Telekinesis - Ad Infinitum 4. The Woolen Men - Temporary Monument 5. Grimes - Artangels

I'm a fairweather (or is it Merriweather?) Animal Collective fan in that I only really like MPP. I like some of Panda Bear's solo stuff too. So yeah, this doesn't really grab me.
